Which are the main needs for inclusive and intercultural education in our school systems? How can we effectively value each student’s strengths and facilitate their inclusion in the host country? What instruments can support the school staff in this difficult task?
These questions guided the implementation of the two-year Erasmus+ project TEACHmi, whose main objective was the design of tailored learning materials and guidelines for the creation of intercultural classes, able to foster the inclusion of migrant students.
As the project is now coming to its end, TEACHmi partners met in Cyprus on 22nd – 23rd November to discuss the remaining tasks and ensure that the resources developed will remain available on the project website. Indeed, users will have the opportunity to continue use the project’s results and apply them to their specific professional contexts. Moreover, the online forum will provide any interested stakeholders with a unique space where to exchange knowledge and experiences with other professionals at international level.
The final meeting in Cyprus was preceded by an international conference hosted by Enoros Consulting Ltd, with the aim to promote TEACHmi goals and provide its target groups with a set of innovative and tailored resources to support their daily professional practice. Indeed, after a keynote speech on the integration process of students with migrant background in schools in Cyprus, partners could present the resources developed, which are:
- Toolbox of teaching languages of schooling for students;
- E-learning and networking platform for classes for teachers and exchange of good practices;
- Curriculum and material for induction classes for students with migrant background;
- Guide for assessment for newly arrived migrant students.
After a final speech on the role of teachers, there was time for participants’ questions and for further discussion and networking.
The event was the perfect occasion to celebrate the results achieved by a collaborative and fruitful partnership, which has laid the basis for further cooperation and initiatives!
